Reading Jeff Jarvis's continuous thoughts on transparency and mass media's lack thereof has made me think, does the lack transparency also make us stupid? The type of transparency Jeff talks about is that which enables people to gain a better understanding of a writer's, or for that matter a media organization's, point of view. But does opaqueness also shade us from knowledge, not just honesty and truth?
